This is an apt repository for packages specific to the Windows Subsystem for Linux. (I.e., specifically those packages which depend on WSL- or Windows-specific functionality and as such do not run when installed over a genuine Linux kernel.)
For current package list, see here: https://github.com/cerebrate/wsl-translinux/blob/gh-pages/README.md
To use this repository, add a new file (
wsl-translinux.list might be a good name) to your
/etc/apt/sources.list.d folder containing the following line (preferred), or else edit your
/etc/apt/sources.list file to contain the following line, changing
xenial to your appropriate distribution codename (as shown by
deb https://cerebrate.github.io/wsl-translinux/ xenial main
Then install the wsl-translinux.key repository signing key. You can do this with the command:
wget -qO - https://github.com/cerebrate/wsl-translinux/blob/master/wsl-translinux.key\?raw\=true | sudo apt-key add -
Then run the following:
sudo apt-get update
After that, you can use apt-get to install packages from this repository as normal.
If you would like to have your WSL-specific apt package included in this repository, just send us a pull request against the
gh-pages branch with your .deb included in the incoming folder, and we'll get right on that.
